I love wearing anything comfortable and stylish. If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that these are two very important factors for me. Lots of celebrities appear to be thinking the same thing.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracy Anderson, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Lautner, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Jay-Z and many more have been seen running around Los Angeles in stylish sweats.
To find out how I can look chic when running around town (and get that look that celebrities have!) I spoke with Elana Brynes, Founder and Creative Director of Kings of Cole. Elana shared with me the top trends for summer and how to get the hot trends for sweats this summer
What are the hot styles for summer?
This summer it is all about bright and fun colors. We are obsessed with Kelly Green, Turquoise and Cobalt this season. We also love a great print like coloured camo. Casual summer style with a pop of colour is right up our alley.
What are the top colours for summer?
This summer I am loving shades of green and blue, but most importantly — everything must be BRIGHT! Pastels were big last year but this year it is go bold or go home.
How to put together a sweats outfit so you look pretty while running errands?
There are tons of ways to look comfortable, yet fashionable. You should not have to sacrifice one for the other. When wearing sweatpants or a sweatshirt, it is important to choose an outfit that will accentuate one part of your body.
For example if you wear a cozy cute sweatshirt, pair it with skinny jeans, shorts or leggings and show off your legs. If you wear a pair of sweatpants, pair it with a fitted tank or flattering tee.
Any interesting ways that you can combine sweats to make them look edgy and on trend?
We love pairing sweats with wedged sneakers, wearing a hoodie with ripped skinny jeans and so do the celebrities!
Any other hot trends coming up in the next few months?
Coming down the pipe is mixing materials like T-shirts with mesh, leather, silk and other accents.
How to care for your sweats?
Machine washable, they are super easy to care for.
I will be thinking about all of these style tips as I continue to expand my summer wardrobe. Your suggestions are always welcome, as I continue on my journey to live life to the fullest. Let’s have the very best 2015!
